"The Terror of Muscle Tower" (マッスルタワーの恐怖, Massuru Tawā no Kyōfu; Viz "The Flexing of Muscle Tower") is the fifty-eighth chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.


As Gokū enters the tower, General White dares the young boy to climb all the way to the top of the tower, and orders the men in the room Gokū enters to subdue him. Gokū, however, takes out all of the men in the room, impressing the general. As White predicts Gokū's doom, the young boy advances to the next floor and combats Sergeant Metallic. After Gokū and Metallic exchange blows, the boy manages to send the large sergeant flying to the wall, but is then surprised when Metallic emerges unaffected by Gokū's attack.
